Girls camping

This past weekend, Tiff, Shar, Candace, Sarah and I headed out to St. Malo for girls camping. We found an awesome site in the overflow. What an amazing weekend we had. The weather could not have been more perfect. Saturday, Erin, Jodi, Pam and baby Peyton came out as well. I am so blessed to have such awesome friends. Thanks for a great weekend girls.

Family Camping

From July 14th to July 20th Caden and I, along with my mom, 2 cousins and there kids, and 2 aunts went to Falcon Lake. Rick and Amy came on Wednesday, Randy on Thursday and my Dad and Rob on Friday. Its called 'Family Camping', cause it used to be about 50 people. My moms side of the family. Now its kinda died out, except for those of us who still go. It was a great week. Early early mornings, Caden was up between 5 and 6 each morning. But we had fun. Here's a few pics to show you what we did.
His very first boat ride. Not a huge hit, although it was ok

Eating chips with Auntie Amy
And with Uncle Rick

He loved and therefore stole Auntie Amys chair.

Caden really loved playing with Conor and Raina. He would also sit on Raina's lap and just stare at her. It was so cute.

Mmm, good sucker. Good place to eat it is in the bath tub

My poor boy

Monday evening, I noticed Cadens ear was swelling like crazy. It ended up about 3 times the size of normal. He was bit by something, both on his ear and his eye. We took him in to urgent care and got a prescription for Benadryl. We think it was an allergic reaction to misquito bites. He's been so good about it. It doesn't seem to bother him much at all. He does occasionally pull on his ear, but no complaining. My little trooper.

25th anniversary cake

On July 12th, we had a party. Oh boy did we have a party. My parents have now been married for 25 years. We had a tent set up, and had a huge dance. We were dancing until 2 in the morning. A bunch of my friends were there. There was an open bar...mmm hmm. Awesome food and great company. Way to go Mom and Dad for making it to 25 years. I can't wait to party again at 50. Oh but wait, that means I'll be 50...ahhhh!!!! This is the cake I made for my parents. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Pet Peeve #1

Why oh why do people feel the need to drive 80kms an hour on a 100km/hr highway. I absolutely cannot stand this. Every time it happens, I get so angry and it happens alot, because I have to drive on the highway every time I go to town. Its horrible. One day, I will make a sign that I carry with me in my car for just such an occasion. It will read, in big bold letters, 'SPEED LIMIT IS 100KMS'

Friday, July 4, 2008


Getting a little concerned that I have too many things to do in the next few days. Alot is happening in July.

Saturday: Looking at a car with Rob. Might be getting a Jetta....Woo Hoo!!! Need to clean the house.

Sunday: Church. Getting together with Chris and Shar

Monday: Need to make a practice something for Mom and Dads anniversary party. (can't say what it is in case Mom reads this. She doesn't know what I'm doing) Meeting in the morning to discuss a couple of church showers coming up.

Tuesday: Working

Wednesday: More anniversary party stuff. Get some stuff ready for camping next week. Girls night.

Thursday: Work

Friday: Decortate tent, make food, make 'special something' for party.

Saturday: Mom and Dads 25th anniversary party.

Sunday: Pack and prepare for the week.

Monday to Sunday: Camping at Falcon Lake.

The week after getting back from camping, I work 2 days. Then on Friday, we leave for girls camping. Wow, July is gonna be gone before I know it. I'm mostly concerned about the week ahead. Alot is going on. I do enjoy being busy, although this leaves no time to enjoy the beautiful weather we are suppose to be having next week. Oh well. It'll be fun anyway. I should quit my complaining and be thankful that I have a job, I have parents who are celebrating 25 years together, I have friends that I get together with every Wednesday, and we get to have new stuff.

Thanks Grandma

Today I went to Winnipeg with Caden, my Mom, Aunt Agatha and my Grandma. I am so thankful that I am able to spend time with my Grandma. I lost my Grandma Suderman very suddenly, and I still hold on to guilt for not spending more time with her.
My Grandma has always wanted to go to Costco. We got a lot of shopping done, tried all the taste testers, and had a great lunch. I bought myself an awesome new bath mat, made with micro fiber.
Quickly stopped at wal-mart, where I found myself a new bathing suit. Love it. I bought a bathing suit when I was in Grand Forks a month ago, but I just don't like it. This one, I've been eyeing for awhile, I just finally bought it. Now I'm ready for camping.
Caden was so good today, Grandma enjoyed shopping, and we had a great time. What an awesome way to spend a Friday.

Welcome Brooklyn Helen Rose Friesen

Baby #2 we've been waiting for. Born July 4th at 3:30pm, weighing 7lbs 3oz. 21 1/2'' long. Only 5 days late. Congrats to Steve and Melissa. Time for somebody to have boys, or else Cadens options for girl friends is gonna be too big :-)
